Title

new Japanese Lector

Description Japanese Lector
School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies
University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK.

Bursary: £1,000 per month

The bursary holder will be involved in the Japanese language teaching and assessment of our undergraduate students under the supervision of the module organiser. The successful candidate will provide a general contribution to the teaching activity of the Japanese Sector in the School and will be expected to assist with extra-curricular events for UK and Overseas Students. This post is from 1 September 2018 to 31 May 2019.

Please email a CV and covering letter outlining motivation and interest in the post to the Head of Japanese, Mika Brown (mika.brown@uea.ac.uk) before 12 July 2018. Please note that both documents must be written in English. Interviews will be held via Skype on 23 July 2018.

If you do not hear from us by 18 July 2017, please assume that your application has been unsuccessful this time.

Requirements:
• MA in Applied Linguistics (Teaching of Japanese as a Second Language or in a related field) or equivalent qualification
• Good Level of English
• Eligibility to work in the UK (possess legal right to work in UK)

Job description:
1. Teaching
All levels (beginners to final year) depending on overall teaching distribution and timetable. The number of teaching hours can vary, and may change from one semester to the next, but will typically range from 13 to 15 hours per week. The subsidiary language classes are likely to take priority in the lector’s teaching workload, but conducting of workshops (see below) is also possible. No lecturing and no module organisation (the lector will work under the guidance of and be expected to liaise with a module organiser / fellow teacher/s). Although she/he is largely free to plan his/her own teaching and choose material for his/her classes, some compulsory topics, skills or materials may need to be covered as per the module organiser’s instructions.

We also run a programme of evening classes for non-credit students, to which the lectors may contribute.

2. Assessing
Assessing and marking oral and written work usually takes place on modules already taught by the lector, but the lector may be asked to share the marking of some assignments with other colleagues. Marking deadlines are often very tight and many assignments need to be second-marked. This may have to take place at the end of the first semester and over the Christmas break, even though teachers may be away from campus at different times, making regular liaising by email essential.

3. Language and culture workshops
These workshops are part of our public engagement activities and are run by French, Japanese and Spanish lectors under the supervision of another colleague.

The lector will also be involved in the Japanese Language Workshops by coordinating with the relevant academic staff (module organiser, Head of Japanese).

4. Japanese Cine-club
A series of four Japanese films is shown in a lecture theatre during the course of each semester. The lector is expected to advertise each film in advance of the viewing, show the film on a DVD, check attendance (viewing is compulsory for all students of Japanese) and generate a debate or other related activity before or after the viewing.

5.Extra-curricular events
One of the specificities of the lector post is the responsibility for organising extra-curricular activities and events such as the Quiz Night, interactive games and presentations on cultural topics about Japan, etc. Other activities include:
• Organising links between students from Japan and home students, sometimes focused around one such event, also comes under this category.
• Participation and leading of sessions in an A/AS Level Revision Day for pupils of local schools preparing their Japanese oral examinations.

6.General duties
The university runs an “induction week” before the start of the autumn semester, and the lector may be asked to take part in some introductory sessions designed for new students.

All teachers need to be available for 2 “office hours” during which students can drop in and see them if they have any queries.

As individual timetables can differ and teachers are away from campus on different days (especially outside teaching periods), regular checking of emails, and prompt responding, is essential. Approaching the relevant colleague (module organiser, mentor, Head of Sector, as appropriate) whenever something needs clarifying is also important and help is at hand if such a situation arises.
